Bar Harbor has been celebrated for its breathtaking beauty ever since the island was discovered in 1604 by Samuel de Champlain, who named it “Isle de Monts Desert” (Mt. Desert Island) for its bare, desert-like mountaintops. In the first national park founded east of the Mississippi, you’ll see nine mountains over 1,000 feet high, stone bridges, lakes, ponds, trails and carriage roads. We’ll travel the entire park loop with stops at Cadillac Mountain, Thunder Hole on Ocean Drive and Sieur De Mont Springs Wild Gardens of Acadia, plus learn about the rich and famous visitors who built summer cottages in Bar Harbor. Lunch is included at the Jordan Pond Restaurant in Acadia National Park. Acadia visitors have shared in this unique dining experience overlooking Jordan Pond with views of Penobscot Mountain dating back to the late 1800’s. We will return to the hotel after lunch and the rest of your day is free to make the most of Bar Harbor. Dinner is on your own tonight.
